Best Santa Fe Drive Boutique Denver 2012 - Rakun



1147 Santa Fe Drive

Denver, CO 80204


Map & Details>>

Rakun is possibly the sweetest little boutique to open its doors here in the last year: Housed in a tiny old cottage, the shop is run solely by entrepreneur/mother Meghan Throckmorton, and its cute sign and raccoon logo affords a bit of precious eye candy for the cars rushing by. Inside, you'll find little dresses and fun jewelry from emerging designers, all priced to appeal to a student clientele from the nearby Auraria campus, artists from the gallery district and, by whimsy, local models seeking inexpensive high-fashion looks. You might also find Throckmorton's toddler wandering in and out of this easygoing, homey house, and of course there's Throckmorton herself, young and eager to please, ready to help you find something that's perfectly you. In the summer, she opens up the back yard for First Friday open houses, and it's not unusual to find sale items waving in the breeze on a clothesline when weather permits; though the space is small, prepare to spend more than a minute soaking in the friendly ambience.

I thought it was quite adorable that you can find the owner's kid running around. From the description, it seems like the shop makes its customers feel at home through its decor. Though the products that she is selling is not entirely my cup of tea, i still want to take a trip down to look at the shop. Perhaps i will bring my wife along.
